Description of Kenya walking safari in the Masai Mara

This Kenya walking safari holiday in the Masai Mara is a spectacular experience, and one of the most memorable ways to see the Mara’s wildlife wonders which include lion, cheetah, leopard, giraffe and zebra. All under the expert guidance of expert Maasai, who have trained extensively with the Koiyaki Guiding School to be exemplary safari guides.

This walking safari experience takes place at the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, which was set up in partnership with local and indigenous Maasai people. As well as having a couple of nights in our luxury fixed safari tents, you will be camping in remote spots using our special Dorobo Tents which, along with the Dorobo walking safari itself, was created in honour of the Dorobo community who live off the African savannah, carrying no other protection than their intrinsic understanding of the wilderness.

It is this intrinsic understanding of the landscapes and wildlife, and your guides’ innate willingness to share that knowledge that make this such a special experience, and one that captures the heart and soul of all our guests. Hear lions roar, walk in the tracks of great mammals, and then watch the sun go down over the savannah, as a vast array of stars appears. And then the same again the next day!

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism: Kenya walking safari in the Masai Mara

Environment

At our camp, we run on solar power with a backup generator for those times of no sunlight & a booster system for water heating fueled by Eco briquettes made from waste. We use energy saving bulbs, recycle our waste organic on site in a series of composting pits, plastic & tins are sent back to Nairobi for recycling. We have Eco composting toilets whereby the liquid waste & all waste water is collected then used in our tree plantation.

All wildlife guides will instruct guests on the responsible way to view wildlife whilst on safari. Our strategic environmental best practice includes the creation of Conservation Partnerships through developing local management models that help safeguard ecosystems. Through long-term tourism partnerships and concentrating on activities that mobilize the community towards offsetting of carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere through active participation in tree planting and Afforestation initiatives.

Eagle View, Mara Naboisho is constructed with local materials, running on solar, hot water & energy systems with a back up generator, energy saving bulbs, recycling of non organic waste. All plastic is collected and transported for off-site recycling. Bio-degradable waste is converted to compost for our vegetable garden. Leave a positive footprint and reduce your carbon footprint by planting a tree in our tree plantation.

Community

Over 95% of camp staff are from the local Maasai community therefore your holiday empowers and enriches the community within which we operate our camps.

Fair-trade: we promote women groups from the local community in developing and retailing exquisite beaded and leather merchandise. Purchase a BMB product from our gift shops and receive a personalized message on the woman who designed the merchandise.

Empowerment and awareness through scholarships in local schools and the Koiyaki Guiding School (the only guiding school in Mara). The local community receive income from tourism activities in the Mara Talek and Mara Naboisho Conservancies. Our long history of close co-operation with the Maasai community distinguishes us from other tourism operators in Masai Mara.

Our mutual bond climaxed in 2010 when we successfully established the community owned nature conservancy, Naboisho Conservancy, named after the Maa expression of ‘coming together’, chosen by the Maasai to epitomize how the Maasai community came together to face the alarming issue of decreasing land. By establishing a community owned nature conservancy, we provided the Maasai with an alternative to selling their land to outsiders and helped protect vital wildlife territory. The local community receive income from tourism activities in the Mara Talek and Mara Naboisho Conservancies.
